A Strengths Based Approach

High performing teams must possess a combination of mutual trust, respect, clear expectations, and talent alignment, which involves everyone doing what they do best,in order to consistently operate and be successful at a high level of performance.

In  order to create and sustain an engaged, strengths-based culture within an organization, we often utilize Gallup's StrengthsFinder  and Cultural Engagement (Gallup Q12) tools. The Strengths Finder assessment has been developed over the past 30 years, and is built on a strong analytical platform and database, having been taken by 12 million people (online) in most of the countries around the world. 

 Research from Gallup indicates that:

  • People who use their strengths in the workplace every day are six times more likely to be engaged on the job.  

  • Teams that focus on strengths every day have 12.5% greater productivity.

In order to facilitate Strengths-based conversations in our performance-focused consulting and coaching programs, we use the StrengthsFinder assessment, which measures a person’s natural talents within 34 themes, and then identifies the Top 5 most dominant themes (areas of strength) for an individual. By revealing the ways in which each person most naturally thinks, feels, and behaves, StrengthsFinder helps individuals discover and build upon the areas in which they have the most potential to develop and succeed. 

The StrengthsFinder Assessment can be offered as part of Critical Game Consulting's individual coaching,  team workshop or a leadership development program.
